Scott Rohrer struck gold once again.
The champion golfer out of Lake Wylie, shot 72 and a 78 over the first two days of the Special Olympics North America Golf Championship here to lead the pack early. On day three, Rohrer had an eagle on second hole on the way to shooting a 76 for the round and walking away with the gold medal.
Rohrer, who rules York County’s Special Olympics games and set a world record in 2015 when he fired a six under par 66 at the World Games in Los Angeles at age 25, is competing against more than 200 other athletes and Unified Partners from the United States and Canada.
A golf player since age 7, Rohrer made the pro tour last year when he played in the RBC Heritage ProAm on Hilton Head Island.
